Happy Jesus Day:
We all have had heavy hearts. I can’t imagine how God must have felt sending His only son to take upon the world’s sins and die so we may be redeemed to the Father. So many parents lost their children once they left home for whatever reason and never returned. Acknowledge that your loss can catalyze newfound understanding and spiritual growth. Trust in God to carry you through your journey. He knows best because He experienced it first. Sharing with Him not only your joys and triumphs but also your doubts and fears. Even in times of wavering faith, reach out to Him, knowing He is strong enough to bear your pain and questions (“ and provide for those who grieve in Zion” Isaiah 61:3). Open your eyes to the needs of others, offering comfort and support wherever possible. By showing love and compassion to those around you, you will find that your pain begins to lessen as your focus shifts from your pain and grief to the healing of others. By reaching out, healing and growth can be yours and someone else’s. Lord, you are in control. You see the aches of our hearts, and You have the power to take them so that we can be free. Have Your divine way in our lives.
